The Team

Hello my name is Anthony Marchese.  I am the writer and director of the film. From the initial idea about a lonely boy meeting a lonely girl and how they inspire each other to see that the world is a beautiful place, to the completed script and storyboard, I along with my team of Carolina Ravassa and Matteo Prendergast welcome you to a project that we have been working on for over a year.

Carolina Ravassa

Carolina Ravassa is an actor, dancer and voice over artist fluent in English, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian. Carolina spent her childhood between Colombia and the US where she developed a passion for acting. She went on to study in Spain and Italy, and discovered the power of socio-political change through Theatre of the Oppressed with Augusto Boal in Brazil. She attended Boston College where she received her Theatre Arts degree and continued her film studies at The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts. She is now pursuing her acting career in NYC.

Carolina had her film debut in Disney's Step Up 3D and has appeared in Independent films such as Maybe Tomorrow, I Am Julia and Nueva York  and People People, a comedy pilot. Recently she shot a co-star role opposite Dominic West in a new Showtime pilot, The Affair. She also plays Taliana Martinez in the newly released Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto V; a strong female character in the game that has gotten rave reviews. She is currently shooting the independent film, Millie and the Lords.


Matteo Prendergast

"My aim is glory, not for myself but for the whole human race. I hope to be a small part of the inspiration that leads to world wide rising awareness. Awareness of who we are as individuals and as an interconnected and interdependent world wide tribe. Through my acting, though bearing my soul and my heart, I hope to reflect the audiences' own heart and soul."
